Misfits’ women are not to be messed with (Guardian)

I LOVE ALISHA. Both she and Kelly were bloody awesome characters, but Alisha especially. Basically just cast Antonia Thomas in everything, please? I wrote this blog for the Guardian’s TV blog because I was getting a bit fed up with the idea that characters like […]

Why has the world fallen under Taylor Swift’s spell? (Drowned in Sound)

Premier Inn

Premier Inn

Conceptual copy (mainly emails) and content for Premier Inn, that hotel chain with the well comfy beds. (I haven’t tried the beds yet myself but I’m angling to buy one. Yes, BUY one.)    

Wonderbly

Wonderbly

aka. Lost My Name when I worked with them! Wonderbly produce personalised childrens’ books (which are gorgeous) and, on their website, really rather fantabulous makey things for parents and kids to create together. I really loved being allowed to write the copy for this blog. […]
